LANTastic 51
Date Confirmed. Next Installment is now 26th Nov 2016.

Thank you to all those that attended the 50th celebration and the various contributions/donations to make the event free. The positive feedback has been great and made it very worth while.

After a long break leading up the big 50, I thought we'd better squeeze in another before the end of the year to get the 3 month average back on track. 

As usual if you have any suggestions on new games to play, drop us a line here. 

Note: Start time maybe revised to earlier if the venue doesn't have an earlier booking. But will certainly be starting by 2pm.

LANTastic 50
Date Confirmed. Next Installment is now 3rd Sep 2016.

Hard to imagine, but we're up to the 50th LAN at the Glenelg North Community Centre Hall beginning 2005. But as many remember we started the regular Friday nights back around 96 at APHS and probably clocked up a few 100 late nights there on top of the 49 at the current venue.

Being a milestone event, we'll be planning few extras. Details to come shortly.

Note: Start time maybe revised to earlier to facilitate a BBQ. But will certainly be starting by 2pm

As usual if you have any suggestions on new games to play or some ideas how to celebrate the 50th event, drop us a line here.
